Wisconsin DHS Awards $1.2 Million to Local Programs to Support Innovation

Topics: State News,

Per a recent press release, the Wisconsin Department of Health Services (DHS) will award $1.2 million in grants to 15 local county Birth to 3 Programs across the state that will pilot new and innovative efforts to improve outcomes for participating children. These grants will allow local areas to explore new and better ways to address the unique needs of children with developmental delays and disabilities. Some will aim to increase coordination between various partners trying to help the children. Others will offer new trainings for staff and families. Some will try out new tools to help identify children’s issues early and trigger action. Additional programs are trying combinations of these approaches. All are based on a common understanding: early interventions can change the trajectory of a child’s future.
